Neil was a super host. Very helpful. Could not have been in a better location. And Noreen's breakfast were great- wonderful presentation and some eclectic (and good) combinations. Come with a great appetite.

Four of us stayed 2 nights in 2 rooms and enjoyed it very much. The rooms were good (and good value) although next time I think I would ask for the top floor (we booked too late for a choice). Breakfast was probably the best I've had in Ireland - interesting choices, cooked with love with good ingredients. The library... More

We were two couples traveling together for 10 days and absolutely loved our two nights at Virginia's. Neil and Noreen were so kind and welcoming. The breakfasts were amazing and the accommodations were wonderful.

Second time staying at Virginias in Kenmare. Noreen and Neil are great hosts. Great location off the "Ring of Kerry". Neil provided great dinner recommendations and even booked us stage side for some great local Irish music. The breakfast really brought us back ;)!! Highly recommend Virginias.

Noreen and Neal are wonderful people, very kind. The place is very nice and clean, it is situated in the center of Kenmare. Noreen makes a delicious breakfast for her hosts. I can recommend this B&B everyone, and i hope to return here as soon as possible. Marco

Great location right on the main street in Kenmare. Hosts were wonderfully welcoming and helpful in every way, including helping us make bookings for Skellig Michael and for a B&B the night we left Kenmare. Wonderful breakfast -- best we had in our two week trip. Would highly recommend this B&B.

Very central guest-house, very welcoming, helpful with local information and central location. Wish we had had more time to explore this great little town.Would love to have stayed an extra night but was fully booked. Loved Dingle and Beara Peninsula. Parking is in the street but this is very common. We packed an overnight bag so we didn't have to... More

Stayed here last Summer for 1 night. Very nice. Highly recommend. Well priced. They claimed the breakfast was to die for so you can imagine how excited we were the following morning. It was ok. Nothing wrong with it but certainly nothing to be shouting about. Will stay again.

We loved how sweet Noreen and Neil were! Nothing was too much trouble, The b&b is conveniently located right on the main street, so walking to anything is easy. Things quiet down in the evening, so the road noise really didn't seem to be an issue for us. Breakfasts were great! We wouldn't hesitate in recommending a stay at Virginia's!

This inn is conveniently located on the Main Street above the town shops. Easy access to pubs and dining options. However the Main Street is also the main highway used to access the Ring of Kerry and is quite heavily used. Most of the rooms face this street and are subject to the associated noise. While our room had insulated... More
